I choose to give this product 4 out of 5 Gold Teacher’s Stars!
One of the many benefits of being a member of the TOS Homeschool Crew, is that I have the opportunity to try products that I might not run across on my own. I love it! We have been blessed with several of these products that have brought a smile to my face and the face of my son. Motherboard Books is one of those companies that we have enjoyed learning more about these past few months.
We received the e-book, “Let’s Make a Web Page!” to try out in our homeschool. The e-book is just 60 pages long and is geared for kids 8 to 12 years of age. I have taken college courses in html code and creating web pages, so I was a little unsure how a 60 page e-book was going to work. What I forgot to consider was that kids learn quickly and usually more easily than adults. I also didn’t realize how well Phyllis Wheeler, the author, would explain the concepts.
This e-book is explained extremely well and my son was off and building his very first web page in practically no time. He read through the book and then began applying the concepts and instructions and had his first page completed in just a couple of hours. He loved it! I must say that I was very impressed!
Motherboard Books offers a few different books that teach computer principles and concepts. There is even an internet scavenger hunt that my son thoroughly enjoyed. The scavenger hunt is free when you sign up for the free e-newsletter. If you are looking for something to help you teach computer science in your classroom, check out the products found at Motherboard Books. Your kids will soon be building webpage after webpage and exploring their creativity in ways they could only imagine before.
